Try looking at this....ieSpell - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
Or go to FF forum for answer.

Maybe an Add-On is stopping it. do you use Add-ons? can you disable all add-ons and see if it still does this?

IE 9 and Spell Check
Can anyone please explain to me why IE9 does not have a native spell-check capability? All other browsers seem to have it. Is there a technical reason that prevents IE from having this? Has MS ever explained why spell-check is not included as a feature of IE (especially in 9 Beta and RC)? Thanks
